A day in the life: Jessica Short’s fourth grade

Student examining hydroponic lettuce and measuring its height

Visit our district Facebook page to take a look at a typical day of learning in Jessica Short’s fourth grade at Pine Hills Elementary School.

On Thursday morning, students sharpened their observational skills by checking in on their hydroponic lettuce and basil, recording the height of the plants and adding some sketches to their logs of the ongoing project. Students then traded their rulers for books as they did some independent reading before heading to lunch.
